Are Alice and Pinocchio worth riding for an adult with no children?

Disneyland: I don't like Snow White and Winnie. Are the other rides I mentioned above better?

Winnie is really bad at DLR. All the others are better and worth it if you have time.

What was that Lion King message again ? Oh yeah.......the circle of life.
Seems to me that there are phases we all go through which may influence what rides we go on. As a younger child rides like Pooh and Snow White are fantastic. Then as an older child these become "uncool". Add in a little peer pressure and they are seriously "no-can-do " attractions. As a young adult you maybe re-assess because you may have children of your own that you can take. Finally as a mature adult you really don't care what others think. You simply go on all the rides that you want to regardless of their fear factor, speed, cool or whatever.
So in my humble opinion all attractions have a value regardless of your age. Just kick back and enjoy them.

Alice is definetly worth going on except they recently put some scafolding up around the outdoor scene which use to be the best part... Pinochio usually has a pretty short line just like snow white... Alice, peter pan, and mr toad are the ones with the longer waits

If the wait is not prohibitive, I'd give Pinocchio and Alice in Wonderland a try as they are classic dark rides and unique to Disneyland. Who knows, you may enjoy them.

Do not let your dislike of Disneyland's two worst dark rides turn you away from the others. Pinocchio's Daring Journey and Alice in Wonderland are two classic rides at Disneyland, and if you haven't been on them there is no reason you should just avoid them. Here is what I would recommend:

If the wait is less than 15 minutes, ride.
If the wait is 15-30 minutes, it is up to you. You can ride if you want, or you may want to do other rides and come back later.
If the wait is greater than 30 minutes, skip it. You can check back later, but neither one is worth more than a half hour wait.
